ParkOhio Announces Record Revenues and Net Income for 201217:01 EST Monday, March 04, 2013CLEVELAND, March 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Park-Ohio Holdings Corp. (NASDAQ:PKOH) today announced results for its fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2012.  FOURTH QUARTER RESULTSNet sales were $275.7 million for the fourth quarter of 2012, an increase of $41.1 million, or 18%, from net sales of $234.6 million for the fourth quarter of 2011.  ParkOhio reported net income of $7.7 million, or $.63 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2012.  This compared to a net income of $18.9 million, or $1.58 per diluted share, for the fourth quarter of 2011. Net income in 2011 included $11.3 million due to the reversal of the Company's valuation allowance against its U.S. net deferred tax assets.  Net income, as adjusted for the reversal of the Company's valuation allowance of $0.94 per diluted share was $7.7 million, or $0.64 per diluted share in 2011.  Net income in 2012 of $0.63 per diluted share was comparable to net income, as adjusted in 2011 of $0.64 per diluted share.  FULL YEAR RESULTSNet sales for 2012 were a Company record and totaled $1,134.0 million, an increase of $167.4 million, or 17%, from net sales of $966.6 million for 2011.  Net income was a record $31.8 million, or $2.62 per diluted share, for 2012, which included the impact of a $13.0 million pre-tax litigation settlement charge, or $.68 per diluted share. This compared to net income of $29.4 million, or $2.45 per diluted share, for 2011.  Net income for 2011 was favorably impacted by $11.3 million associated with the reversal of the Company's valuation allowance against U.S. net deferred tax assets, and net income for 2011 was unfavorably impacted by restructuring and asset impairment charges of $5.4 million, refinancing charges of $7.3 million and a tax provision associated with the refinancing of $2.1 million.  Net income, as adjusted, which excludes the reversal of the deferred tax valuation allowance, the restructuring and asset impairment charges and the refinancing charges, in 2011 was $33.0 million, or $2.75 per diluted share.2013 REVENUE AND EARNINGS GUIDANCE UPDATEWe currently forecast our consolidated 2013 revenues to be approximately 8% greater than 2012 revenues.  We forecast our earnings to be in the range of $3.65 to $3.95 per diluted share.  In addition, we are forecasting EBITDA, as defined to be in the range of $119 million to $124 million for 2013.  EBITDA, as defined, reflects earnings before interest expense, income taxes, and excludes depreciation, amortization, certain non-cash charges and corporate-level expenses as defined in the Company's revolving credit agreement.  Edward F.
